First Ride: Triumph 2014 Thunderbird Cruisers

Triumph’s two new 2014 Thunderbird-based cruisers, the ‘Road King’ style LT bagger and the fat, reto-styled Commander, are currently being put through their paces for the first time by MCN Executive Editor Phil West in the USA. The LT is possibly the more significant of the two bikes being aimed directly at one of Harley’s best sellers in America’s biggest ...

Staff Blog: Triumph Street Triple R at Silverstone

  Two years ago, MCN Consumer Editor Tony Hoare almost died after an accident at Cadwell Park. He hadn't been back on track since, until he took his Triumph Street Triple R for a trackday on the International Circuit at Silverstone. brightcove.createExperiences(); BLOG13 | STREET13

Staff Blog: In search of confidence

I’ve started to try and get to the bottom of the confidence issue I reported in the paper last week, which has left me with chicken strips on the Street Triple R’s Pirelli tyres. First step was to order some Dunlop Sportsmart tyres. I’m not blaming my drained  confidence on the standard Pirelli Diablo Corsas - but I’ve never ridden ...

Staff Blog: Please don't kill me

Well that was the scariest, most bum-puckery, head-duckery moment I’ve had since I got back on a bike in the Spring. Casually riding south on the A1, thinking about whether to make one more overtake before reaching the exit that leads to the MCN office. Yes, there’s loads of room to pass a dawdling Audi. Check mirror, indicate, aim just ...

Staff Blog: Passports at the ready

There’s always a tingle that comes with the thought of riding abroad. And, now the working day is coming to a close, I’m feeling the tingle. The sun’s shining, the TT commentary is piping out of the computer and I’m headed for Belgium on the Street Triple R. It’s not designed for touring, but you can go anywhere on anything ...

Staff Blog: Fair-weather rider? I wish

This year I’ve been trying to turn myself into a fair weather rider. Honestly, it’s not me, it’s the bike  - I don’t mind riding in the wet and have done thousands of miles in the rain over the years. But the Street Triple R really doesn’t like the wet. The handling doesn’t inspire me to commute the long way ...

Staff bikes: Triumph Tiger 800 - Fitting an eSystem Scottoiler

Last weekend I fitted an eSystem chain oiling system to my long term Triumph Tiger 800. Unlike traditional vacuum valve operated oilers, Scottoiler’s eSystem uses a small electric pump to dispense measured droplets of oil to the chain Pic 1a It’s a complex piece of kit that uses a dashboard, temperature sensor and accelerometer to control flow.

Staff bikes: Triumph Street Triple - Breaking it in

The first 1000 miles of riding the Street Triple was a real bonding experience between myself and the bike. Feeling the engine develop from a tightly-wound, tense machine into something more fluid and smooth gave me a real sense of understanding its potential. As a new-ish rider (full license last July), this left me excited at the prospect of growing ...
